Tired, dirty furnishings

This place was in a great location, however the sofa, chair and carpeting was filthy and stunk. Fortunately I found a clean sheet in a closet and draped it over the couch in order to sit down. The greasy smell still permeated through. Yuck!!!!

Overpriced with few amenities

This is squarely a 3-star hotel at a 4-star price. Yes, the location really can't be beat, but that's about it. The "front desk" is a 10 minute drive down the hill and not open 24 hours. No room service, no mini-bar, minimal housekeeping service (clean towels only); no real amenities other than the location. The water doesn't maintain a constant temperature, which is clearly an ongoing issue since there are placards warning you that the water temperature might change quickly. No thermostat in the room -- just a wall heater with an on-off switch. Decor straight out of 1970. Scratchy sheets with the room number written on each item with a marker. Very low-class. Really, the whole experience was incredibly disappointing for the price -- a whopping $249.00 a night when we stayed.

Orbitzwebsite - Bait and Switch - not acceptable!

We booked our weekend and believed that we would stay in the Village, But Orbitzwebsite put us in a condo 1/2 mile away. Yes the condo was fine but there was never any indication from Orbitzwebsite that we would not be in the village. The site does not say where one is staying so one can plan.

Great VALUE

Great little village with excellent Sushi restaurant, Mikuni. Helpful person at Elite Feet at Northstar hooked up Tim with insoles that helped his sore foot. THe Cabanas around the skating rink make for a great place to hang out. The mountain was great for hiking and beautiful views.

Wait for improvements to be completed

Unit was fine, the stairs were falling apart (being repaired during stay), large holes leading to units and no lights.

Liked the place, but i thought i was staying in Northstar Village! The village was only 5 min. walk from our unit. Very comfort but, it was hot up in Tahoe and the unit didn't have a/c or a fan. But over all nice place!!!!!
